Long-billed Dowitcher

Large dowitcher flock on south side of Hwy 49 near pump house. Identified as Long-billed by long, straight bills, extensive deep red underparts with heavily barred sides and breast sides on alternate plumaged birds, plump, fat bodied shape, and molting primaries on several birds seen in flight or when wings were open. Hard to say there wasn't a an adult Short-billed or 2 mixed in but I believe the flock was mostly Long-billed.
